I updated my word count earlier today and that means I’ve officially written for 2 weeks straight! It’s far from the first time I’ve accomplished this, but doing it during NaNoWriMo is a big deal.
Missing a day during NaNoWriMo really messes up my momentum. Some people make it work. I can make it work if I have no other choice. However, years of experience has taught me that consistency makes the challenge so much easier.
I’m still behind word count-wise, but I’m closing the gap bit by bit. My word counts are growing and becoming more and NaNoWriMo-like. At this rate I’ll be in great shape for my usual end of the month final push.
The best news this year is that I’m still in love with my story. It’s not uncommon to get sick of a story after the first week or so. We’re two weeks in and I think I’m more excited about writing this story than I was at the start of the month.
How’s NaNo going for you? Have you kept up your writing streak?
